PNW Second Hand Marine Stores

I'm planning a trip to Oregon, Washington and BC this fall and would like to know about your favorite Marine Consignment "Junk" Shops. I know the Second Wave in Seattle and the other one near Shilshole's West Marine but would like to know of others. There is one at Port Townsend's Marina that I visited in the past. I never know exactly what I'm looking for until I browse around and see a bargain.
Kind Regards,
JohnL

There is Popeye's in the Port of Everett Marina, on the N. side, next to the haul out area.

Dunattos (Second Wave in Freemont district) relatively recently bought out the used boat supply shop in Shilshole and have "redone" that store, much to the benefit of us customers. Both stores will dicker with you if they have room to do so. Much is on consignment and the dickering room varies. Regardless, I've been able to walk away with what I wanted feeling satisfied whereas some of the other used marine parts places are way overly optimistic regarding the "value" of their stuff.

Thanks Rick. So do they still have two different stores? Does Fishery Supply have any old stuff?

Mariner's Xchange in village of Steveston (Richmond, BC). First exit after you go through the tunnel under the Fraser River. Go west and follow signs into Steveston; about 15 minute drive from the hwy. Hidden down an alley behind the Royal Bank.

Popeye's Sailors Exchange in North Vancouver, BC, on west side of Mosquito Creek Marina.

Fisheries has a parking lot swap meet sometimes but they only announce it inside the store. So you have to be a regular to know about it..........._/)
